In December 1990, Scarborough announced an intention to apply for membership of the RFL. Scarborough Pirates RLFC were admitted as a member club in January 1991; getting exactly the minimum number of votes required. The Chairman was Geoffrey Richmond who also was the Chairman of Scarborough F.C. Len Casey was Head Coach, and Peter Smith was the captain.

Scarborough played their first competitive game on Sunday 25 August 1991 away to Doncaster in a Yorkshire Cup preliminary round match. Scarborough won 14-10 in front of 1,080 spectators.

Scarborough started the season well and finished ninth in the newly formed fourteen-club Third Division with ten wins and fourteen defeats. See the table below. However, attendances at the McCain Stadium were poor; with only four of their fourteen home matches attracting crowds of over 1,000. In June 1992, it was revealed that they were in debt to the sum of £113,000. Richmond disbanded the club after just one season citing a lack of local interest.
